They'd be in trouble if Lu ever got hurt but if a team is willing to match your price, trading Schneider and keeping Luongo could really help the Canucks.
Par for the course. People love to troll us for the debacle.

Personally, my one major complaint toward Gillis is Schneider was not in play sooner, especially when the return on Luongo seemed meager. Beyond that, he took a gamble and lost. Nothing wrong with that and he is neither the first nor last GM who will do so. And I agree, if we can get a highly touted prospect or a high first, then we found our silver lining.
